I think you have to be competitive and not always ride the ship for better or worse. I say stay competitive in games...the more the young players are able to produce in a tight game, late, the more minutes you give them. I believe over time, the young talent will become players that will be able to contribute more than than vets would, in that situation, even if the vets are hot. But for now, you have to stay competitive so your players can learn how to perform and execute in competitive games and not in garbage time.
Unfortunately, a rusty Kemba and MKG would have disrupted our offense and put us in position to squander another big lead (earlier than later). In that context, they would have been demoralized and playing garbage time following a would-be drought immediately following their entry.
However, Taylor and Hendo got experience in a crunch-time situation. Maybe there will be a game Kemba is off and Sesh plays...and because Sesh's hot hand keeps us in the game, MKG can perform and execute in a real game context where it's competitive and not in garbage time.
Offensively, in an Xs and Os context, Kemba, MKG, Biz, Hendo, and Thomas isjjust plain bad..doesn't mesh at all...I ask that Dunlap at least not leave that group in in a tight game as it is already a lost battle with the lack of shots that would be created aside from a Kemba isolation.
